A British student will see his bamboo blower blueprint brought to market, after backers took note of the ADzero, an eco-friendly smartphone carved entirely from the fast-growing wood.

Conceived by Middlesex University scholar Kieran-Scott Woodhouse, this lignum-lined Android blower is around half the weight of an iPhone. The phone is sculpted out of a single piece of bamboo.

The design has now caught the attention of financial backers, who cobbled together the funds to bring this bamboo badboy to market.
